“Cher, what are you wearing?”
“Says Calvin Klein!”
If you remember where the snippet above is from, congratulations, you are a true child of the 90’s.
It should also be pretty easy for you to identify this barely there spaghetti-strapped mini dress Rihanna wore to last Tuesday’s 2012 GQ Men of the Year Party. But we’ll have you know that Rihanna’s dress isn’t just a look-alike of Cher’s dress. It IS the actual Calvin Klein “Clueless” dress! :

Well, as close as it could be to it, anyways. Rihanna’s red hot Calvin Klein dress is the reissued “Clueless” dress for the L.A. boutique Confederacy back in 2010.
This dress isn’t available anymore but even if it were, it was priced at a steep $916!
Good thing then that plenty of our favorite dress brands have their own slip dresses. Splendid, Nightcap Clothing and Free People make these cute slip dresses at prices that aren’t as shocking:
Splendid Layers Slip Dress, $39.00 to $78.00 at Shopbop
Nightcap Clothing Basic Slip Dress, $128.00 at Shopbop
Intimately Free People Seamless Mini, $28.00 at Free People
Now, the question is: would you wear a slip dress as an actual dress out in public? (Our own answer is yes but only if the dress isn’t sheer or see-through!)
